The Dallas Cowboys are “evaluating” the opportunity of attending Saturday’s private workout for Colin Kaepernick, according to ESPN’s Josina Anderson.
“Just spoke to a source from an NFC NFL team that told me their team will review the Colin Kaepernick workout in the morning. The source’s opinion: “We have nothing to lose by attending Kaepernick’s workout, but I still think for us it would just be an information-gathering trip.”
After speaking to another team from my last tweet, as of now, I’m told there is interest within the #Cowboys organization to send at least one representative to Colin Kaepernick’s workout, per source.”
Kaepernick, who hasn’t played in an NFL game since the end of the 2016 season, confirmed on Tuesday that his workout is this weekend and he is ready for it.
“I’m just getting word from my representatives that the NFL league office reached out to them about a workout in Atlanta on Saturday,” Kaepernick wrote on Twitter. “I’ve been in shape and ready for this for 3 years, can’t wait to see the head coaches and GMs on Saturday.”
Kaepernick threw for 12,271 yards, 72 touchdowns and 30 interceptions, adding 2,300 rushing yards and 13 scores on the ground, across six seasons with the 49ers. He also led the franchise to the Super Bowl.
NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport added that “several clubs” have expressed interest in Kaepernick.
“Several clubs inquired as to Kaepernick’s football readiness and both him and his reps have frequently expressed his desire for him to return to the league. The NFL has arranged this opportunity for him to work out, and for all clubs to have the opportunity to evaluate him,” Rapoport tweeted.
